You can do a simple bash script that loops through each record returned by sqlplus and echos it to a text file.  Speed will greatly depend an the number and type of columns you have.  If you are familiar with bash and would like an example let me know and I will email it.

Subject: Re: [Squirrel-sql-users] Export Oracle table to Flat file


Squirrel is too slow for retrieving massive data amounts. sqlplus will be
slow too
You may want to write some Pro*C scripts to extract data from Oracle into
flat file.
Or if to get really high-end performance for export into flat files (
200,000 - 300,000 rows per second ) then look into commercial tools.  For
instance Fastreader (http://www.wisdomforce.com) is good way to go
